Born today, you are more than willing to go where fate -- and the stars -- lead you, as you are a strong and eager individual who enjoys meeting new people, doing new things and learning new lessons wherever you go. While you may never be in charge of something big in your life, it is of little consequence, for even when you are simply doing a job as instructed by the powers that be, you can do good work and have a lasting impact not only on the work itself, but on the people around you -- and that's really what's important to you.
Your affections run deep, and once you fall in love -- or "like," for that matter -- you are sure to feel that way for quite a long time, and even in the face of disappointment or rejection you find it difficult to turn off that internal switch that compels you to love and like with all your heart. Fortunately, this is a private matter; you're not one to wear your heart on your sleeve.
Also born on this date are: Jerry Trainor, actor; Emma Lee Bunton, singer; Geena Davis, actress; Mac Davis, actor and singer; Hakeem Olajuwon, basketball player; Jack Nicklaus, golfer; Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, Confederate military leader.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you are able to do today -- with few resources, in fact -- will certainly surprise you. A supporter gives you what you truly need.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Doing what's required today is likely to take a little more effort than usual, and not because you're unable or unwilling. Get to work quickly.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Following your instincts today will likely mean getting yourself into a situation that others have warned you against. You can prevail.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Questions of worth and value are likely to be asked and answered again and again today. You seem to know things that others do not.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be precariously balanced between an easygoing and a highly reactive mental state today. When it comes to decisions, timing is key.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are advised to get the bulk of your work done early today, when your mind is fresh and distractions are few. Later, the simple proves tricky.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may feel as though you are getting a little too much criticism today, but the fact is that your recent behavior has attracted such close scrutiny.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must avoid reacting to others in any way that might be interpreted as impatient or disapproving. You must keep emotions in check today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your world view isn't likely to be affected by anyone's behavior today -- at least not dramatically or permanently. You can be more lenient.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may feel stuck between two influences you wish to escape as quickly as possible. Take a page out of someone's playbook.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are determined to get things done the way they should be done today, despite another's attempt to thwart you. You won't be dissuaded!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You've heard what everyone else has heard, and yet your reaction is likely much different. You're marching to the beat of your own drum.
